Betting Strategy

LAY 4. Detonator Jack (WIN)

Matt Taylor (DreamTeam): I will be having a strong bet on Kovalica in this race and have it shorter than the current market price. I think Detonator Jack is too short for me at the price as the 2nd favourite.

LAY 11. Passeggiata (WIN)

Matt Taylor (DreamTeam): There’s going to be too much pace in this race for this horse and I don’t see it finishing off.

Betting Strategy

LAY 2. Let’srollthedice (WIN)

Kingsley Bartholomew (KingZone) – Coming off a win in Sydney but I think the trip down to Melbourne combined with harder competition will see this horse losing on Saturday.

When you place a lay bet, you are betting on something not to happen. Let’s think about the Melbourne Cup again. Remember: there can only be one winner. But what about the others trailing behind them? If you place a lay bet in a “Win” market, you can celebrate if the runner tails off at the back of the field.
